The Rural Payments Agency does not hold assured data for the time period and area requested. As the majority of these schemes ended some time ago, and a new finance system was introduced in the intervening period, extracting this historic information is not possible.

The Agency does not hold this level of historic payment information for Uplands Entry Level Stewardship.
